Call for entry: Taiwan International Ethnographic Film Festival 2013

Calling All Filmmakers! The 2013 Taiwan International Ethnographic Film
Festival will be held in Taipei from October 4th to 8th, 2013.

Entry submission deadline: May 10th, 2013

TIEFF is organized by the Taiwan Association of Visual Ethnography (TAVE), a
non-profit organization dedicated to greater public awareness of
documentary and ethnographic films. TIEFF is more than a venue for
screening films and videos; it is also a forum for education, discussion,
and exchange. TIEFF considers every film selected to be equally valuable;
therefore, there is no competition section in the event.

Our 7th Biennial's central theme is "Beyond Borders." "Beyond Borders"
seeks to explore all kinds of borders, whether physical, cultural,
symbolic, or psychological. Borders can be barriers or they can mark
passage from one place, state, or time to another. Films in this category
might focus on migration, diaspora, globalization, the environment, or
other topics related to the concept of transcending boundaries. Whatever
the topic, films submitted for consideration in this category should
clearly capture the spirit of the central theme.

We also offer the "New Vision" category for new ethnographic films. Films
in this category need not fit the central theme. The only requirements are
that they be ethnographic in focus and were made after January 1st, 2011

Films can be submitted under either of the following two categories:
A) Central Theme: "Beyond Borders." Open to non-fiction films produced at
any time which show a clear relationship to our central theme. (See
description above.)
B) New Vision: Ethnographic films on any subject, completed after January
1st, 2011.
